. >> reporter: but astonishingly in the debate tonight, those comments never came up. obama declined an opportunity, or simply whiffed, when given the chance, when he was asked a broad question on the role of government. he ended up talking about, well, something. >> in the middle of the civil war, abraham lincoln said, let's help to finance the transcontinental railroad. >> reporter: romney's response was clear, practiced and forcibly delivered. >> we have a responsibility to protect the lives and liberties of our people and that means the military, second to none. >> reporter: at the end, they shook hands and then, a moment offing toness. the obamas and the romneys on stage. but even as they were enjoying a little bipartisanship, both sides began spinning and readying for the next round. two more rounds ahead. just ahead, in our program, who made the grade? who missed the mark? the experts who prepped sarah palin and george w. bush for their debates tell us how they scored tonight's candidates for a "nightline" report card. yeah, i'm looking to save, but i'm not sure which policy i
. you can see the stage behind me. everything planned right down to the minute tonight. president obama will enter from the right. the governor from massachusetts, governor romney entering from the left. but to give you an idea of the intimate setting here, about 1,000 people inside this debate hall when it starts. look behind the cameras tonight. we're inside a hockey arena that normally seats 8,000, but they've created this intimate setting as tens of millions watch from their living rooms tonight. when president obama and mitt romney walk onto that stage tonight, it will be the first time they've met face-to-face in four years. last time, during the presidential race in 2008, during those back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates during the primaries, when candidates from both sides were called onto the stage, it was then senator obama and governor romney, huddled talking. they have spoken by telephone. the president congratulated romney when he clinched the republican nomination. and there was this moment in 2007, a labor day parade. >> good luck to you today. >> r
the debate. a cnn poll averaged 7 recent surveys and overall, president obama had 49 to 45%. well, tonight's debate, will it make a difference among the voters? craig bosswell is live in denver with more now. craig. >> reporter: good evening to you. three hours and counting until the main event here. the first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign. the first question will go to president obama and that is followed by two-minute answers on the topic and the 15 minutes and there will be a discussion about that topic. this debate is divided up into three 15-minute segments. the economy, roll on government and leadership style. the pressure is certainly on, on mitt romney to perform and is a must-win situation. on the flip side of that for presume a it's a must not lose situation as well and here we are a month away from the election and the stakes are high here tonight, even though both campaigns tend to downplay the expectations. make no mistake, the pressure is on, brian. >> are you getting a sense from puppedits that mitt romney has the experience and that perhaps president obama has a
? dagen: thank you nicole. connell: finally tonight is the night. president obama and mitt romney will square off in their first presidential debate. dagen: peter barnes is in denver where the opponents will go toe-to-toe. hey peter. peter: hey dagen and connell. listen, mitt romney hopes these depates will help -- debates will help him overtake president obama and pull ahead here and use these debates to try to close the race with the american people. the new poll shows the race tightening, 49% for obama, 46% for romney, among likely voters, within the margin of error. there's a lot of debate over whether these debates can make a difference in these elections. looking in history, they have in in the past. in 1960 they helped john kennedy overtake richard nixon. 1980 helped reagan over take carter. 2000 helped bush overtake gore. romney was behind in 02 race for governor in massachusetts, he was trailing badly six weeks before the election. the campaign reorganized, romney pulled his advisors together. they decided on a new strategy which was to get tough and get specific and romn
're back with a live look at the stage in denver where president obama and mitt romney will debate tonight. on the day of the big debate, the gop's todd akin problem just got worse. akin is, of course, the missouri senate candidate who six weeks ago set off a huge controversy with an absurd legitimate rape comment. now slate magazine uncovered video of the congressman giving a speech on the house floor from 2008. in it, he slams abortion doctors as terrorists, saying that they sometimes perform abortions on women who are, quote, actually not pregnant. how's that even possible? but listen to what else akin said about abortion? >> and yet just as slavery is fundamentally unamerican, so even more so, anything that violates the most fundamental right, the right to life. >> he's comparing slavery to a medical procedure. it's another reminder from todd akin about the war on women waged by his party. just this week we saw him caught on tape saying it's okay for a woman to be paid less than a man for the same work and saying his opponent, claire mccaskill, was more lady like in 2006. but somehow r
>>> tonight on "nightline," just a little while ago, the first faceoff between republican nominee mitt romney and president barack obama, with only 34 days to go before the election. did someone win the great debate? >>> making the grade. they advised george w. bush, al gore and sarah palin before their famous debates. with the stakes so high, what marks do our political insiders give these candidates? we'll tell you, in the "nightline" report card. >>> and, what's your percent? are you in the 47%? what does it take to be in the 1% of the 1%? this year, the percentage has taken on a life of its own, and we get right to the point. >> announcer: from the global resources of abc news, with terry moran, cynthia mcfadden and bill weir in new york city, this is a special edition of "nightline," one-on-one, the candidates debate, october 3rd, 2012. >> good evening, i'm terry moran. tonight, a high stakes showdown as president barack obama and mitt romney took the stage in denver to go head to head for the first time. an estimated 60 million americans tuned in to watch this critical momen
to be dropped on the 2012 race for the white house because tonight you will hear from barack obama like you have never heard from him before. this is a journalist that has been tried to hide for years, a glimpse into the mind of the real barack obama. >> a bombshell. a glimpse into the mind of the real barack obama. oh, sounds shocking. so what did they have? a five-year-old speech open ohhed to the opened to the public and widely covered during the 2008 campaign but this caller had a bizarre explanation why old news was suddenly new news. >> people say, this has already been reported. actually, it hasn't been reported and i know because i reported on it the first time. >> he knows it hasn't been reported because he reported on it. okay, roger. roger that. it shows just how desperate the right wing is and today conservative websites jumped on board, going back to their old playbook and dredging up their most offensive rhetoric to attack the president and they've embarrassed themselves with this latest attempt to cook up an october surprise. joining me now is james peterson, professional professo
and fundraisers, president obama and governor romney tonight finally square off face-to-face. >> the president will talk about we need to continue to build the economy from the middle class out and things like education and manufacturing. >> governor romney's focus is talking directly to the voters about what his plans are to strengthen the middle class and get this economy back on track. >> shepard: and with millions of undecided voters still out there, the stakes could not be higher. tonight, the home stretch in the race for the white house. plus, it's not just the candidates who are in the hot seats. a closer look at debate moderators and why the pressure is more intense than ever before. and good evening from the university of denver where we are just two hours away from an historic and high stakes showdown. president obama and governor mitt romney facing off here in their first debate. with less than five weeks to go until election day, a live look now at the stage here in denver. analysts say both men have a lot of on the line tonight. the president trying to hang on to what is a slim le
of president obama. matt jablow spoke tonight with the man who knows a thing or two about presidential debates and said he was just stunned by president obama's poor performance. >> i love these debate. >> reporter: as long-time political correspondent for cnn, frank cesno covered more than his share of debates. >> '84, '88, '94, 2000. >> reporter: but none more interesting than last night's duel in denver. >> because of the expectations that went in were so completely divergent from the results that came out. >> reporter: currently the director of the school of media and public affairs at george washington university, he said mitt romney's poised performance -- >> i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. >> reporter: romney looked like he wanted to be there. he was engaged. >> coupled with president obama's lackluster performance seems to have changed the tone of the presidential race. >> my faith and confidence in the american future sun diminished. >> i cannot explain what happened to barack obama. he was awol. he was distracted, did he -- defensive, detached. >> reporter
. and gordon has a look ahead at 6:00. >> tonight, president obama and mitt romney prepare for the first debate of this campaign. coming up at 6:00 a look at what to and expect when they are -- what to expect tonight. and the thieves in a rash of burglaries are taking some things he might not expect. >> thank you. coming up tonight, the presidential debates. and then deciding what to do after she gets fired from the car dealership. >> this was not such a horrible place to come to every day. bye. dibs on her desk. >> "the middle" is on at 8:00, with abc 7 news at 11:00. >> we will be getting cold here weatherwise, that is for sure. >> august like weather. >> let's get a start over at washington lee high school. some breaks in the overcast should make for a very pretty sunset.81 in frederick. 82 degrees in manassas. as we go through the evening hours, more cloudiness. light showers, sprinkled with some fog overnight. for the overnight hours we will call it mostly cloudy, patchy fog, 64 to 69 degrees, and then tomorrow muggy again. near 80 degrees 81 on friday, and partly sunny on saturday. but
: tonight the economy takes center stage as mitt romney and barack obama face the states. they are here for our debate warm-up. is from the getting more specific about the tax plan? we think so. we have the details. welcome to "the willis report." hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight is the night. obama versus romney. this same stage. the expectations are sky-high. it seems like all obama had to do is show up. with more on this neil cavuto from denver. can romney meet these expectations? >> they are high expectations. the pressure is on him because of these polls. i often think that a lot is put on the challenger. sometimes he can benefit by showing up and sharing the stage with the president of the united states. already on equal footing with him in that respect. he does have the advantage of a dicey economy going forward. the president's supporters say it is not as it had been, and there is some economic news today that portends may be the worst is behind it. but i agree with that. if you want to be in game changer this is the night. and no one doubts the earlier point. he has
way above this, fellas. >> two things would be game changers tonight. if suddenly barack obama says you're likeable enough, mitt, or if mitt romney says i'll bet you $10,000 that you're wrong on that, you know, it's interesting, joe. i somewhat disagree with mark. i looked at debates from 1960 on. what is really remarkable is how little they changed things. they have little impact. in 2004 everybody said john kerry got the best of those. >> he was up after the first one. >> no, he was not. i've got the data right here. the only debate where there was any movement beyond two or three points from the start of the debates till the end was 1976. jerry ford moved ten points, and he made one of the great faux p pases in any debate. it doesn't have the effect that people think that it has. i think there are five things that make a difference. conventions matter a lot. the predicate, where you are in the summer beforehand, the kind of campaign you run and the kind of paid media you have. i think debates are probably fifth. >> boy, mike barnicle, i disagree with it. mark mckinnon disagrees w
even started. where was obama tonight? romney, i loved the split screen. staring at obama. addressing him. like the prey. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i've got to beat the champ and i've got to beat him tonight and i don't care what this guy moderator whatever he thinks he is because i'm going to ignore him. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he was winning. >> all right. good morning. it's thursday, october 4th. welcome to "morning joe." wow! page turns a bit. with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle and national affairs for "new york" magazine and political analyst john heilemann. and in nashville, i love nashville, pulitzer prize-winning historian jon meacham. meacham. should we go right there? >> in one second. i've -- we've got to set this up first for mike barnicle. we've all been saying the same thing. phone calls coming in last night from my democratic friends, independent friends, republicans, everybody's been asking the same thing, where did this come from? we've never seen this mitt romney before, but you say you have. >> yes, this
of mine, completely went off the rails. take a listen to this. >> where was obama tonight? romney, i love the split screen. staring at obama. addressing him like the prey. he did it just right. i'm coming at an incumbent. i got to beat him. you got to beat the champ and i'm going to beat him tonight. what was romney doing? he was winning. >> he sure was, chris. he was winning big time. so now that romney is on a roll, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they get off message or they fumble the ball a little bit. if they can string together one good day after another they only have to do it 33 more times they can get it done. >> growth, jennifer. growth, tax reform, lo
. president obama went sightseeing at hoover dam. tonight they will face a lot of questions about the economy. >> i'm not interested in creating democratic or republican jobs. i'm interested in creating american jobs. >> reporter: tonight's debate will feature six 15-minute segments, the first three devoted entirely to the economy. >> there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of opportunity. >> reporter: john quinn is one of those people who will be paying close attention to those first 45 minutes of the debate. he is about to lose his apartment after being unemployed for four months. >> i'm a college graduate. i had a steady career in telecom for over 12 years. i continuelook for work seven days a week actually. it is the hardest unpaid job i have ever had. >> reporter: he wants to know what president obama and mitt romney will do for people like him. >> there's a lot of people who have been out of work for a long time who are not satisfied with the status quo with either party the way it is working. >> reporter: the final segments of the debate will focus on healthcare. >> i want to repeal obama
now -- the sight of tonight's debate. it's great to have you here. showing president obama losing support with women voters. why do you think that might be the the case there? >> i think that women voters are looking at mitt romney's policies and they're realizing that they're not good for women. economic policies. the health care policies. family planning. in florida, of course, medicare's a big issue. women really want to look at candidates that are going to support issues that help women and families and that's what's going on. i think in florida and around the country. >> but do you think because the pol polling is is showing the president is losing support -- that he has been campaigning op are not good for women? >> oh, well, i think that, i'm sorry, i misunderstood. i thought you said president obama was winning in florida. i still think that as women begin to look at the policies more and more, they will increasingly support the president as we're seeing in other states. in colorado, for example, where the debate will be held tonight, president obama has a healthy lead amo
has been told to push his buttons and teach romney how not to be testy and attack obama tonight. he wants to come off as likable. >> when did you arrive in denver? how heavy spent the day today? what have you seen? >> i arrived monday. the first thing i did was go to a rally here in denver with mitt romney. over the last day, i have been observing people in town for the debate. a lot of protesters. as i was walking into the debate, occupy wall street people. there were protesters outside romney's event. i was surprised in comparison to the debates for years ago. i covered john mccain. it seems there were not as many people outside protesting the debates. i do know if that has changed the q. what can you tell us about the governor's preparations -- -- >> what can you tell us about the governor's preparations? how has he -- what are your observations, what you know about his preparations? >> mitt romney is a candidate who has been open about the fact he is not like to do debate prep during the primaries. that may be hurt him a bit. he would sit around a conference room tables with his
. will they be a factor in tonight's debate? carl rove and dick morris on that. >> obama win? i hope so. >> bill: the vendsen dictator chavez endorsing president obama. dennis miller has some thoughts on the wisdom of that also tonight, what both candidates should say in order to win the denver debated this evening. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. president obama talking race and class in a very provocative way. will that be an issue in tonight's debate? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. the conservative daily caller web site released a full tape of then senator obama speaking to a group of black ministers at hampton university in virginia back in 2007. playing to that crowd, mr. obama brought up unfairness in the wake of hurricane katrina. he cited the stafford act which requires areas that receive federal assistance to pay 10% of what they use. however, when florida was hit by hurricane andrew and new york city by the terror attack on 9/11. the stafford act was waiv
want to do with people when they are poor? shove them in the emergency room. where was obama tonight? >> progressives from chris matthews to bill maher to michael moore all across the progressive wing of the democratic party, there's great disappointment. >> they were jumping out of their seats watching. >> i understand. i understand there was a hunger for us to attack romney more personally than the president did last night. >> bottom line, romney scores, but was last night the first to game-change his campaign and what they sorely needed? >> the only loophole he had enough courage to mention last night was big bird and public broadcasting. >> i think governor strickland was watching a different debate from me and the american people. >> yeah, big bird got hit by the bus last night. joining me is ed schultz, good to have you here. i was watching you last night, your immediate reaction saying that the president was off his game. you were stunned. and then you had this exchange with david plouffe from the obama campaign after the debate. take a look. >> mr. plouffe, why didn't the pre
to save his budget. tonight, obama campaign's senior adviser on mitt romney's fuzzy math. >>> devastating new poll numbers show mitt romney's secret video is crushing his campaign. >> i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility. >> richard wolffe on how aggressive the president needs e to be on the 47% tape. >>> mitt romney's billionaire base is starting to lose their cool. >> we need leadership, not criticism. we need encouragement, not discouragement. >> e.j. deon on why billionaires who do so well under obama can't stand the president. >>> and democrats with a victory for voters in pennsylvania, but republican voter fraud is getting swept under the rug here in colorado. tonight the latest on the rnc's voter fraud scandal. >>> good to have you with us. thanks for watching. we're coming to you tr from denver, colorado. the first presidential debate one day away. this is the romney pre-game show. will mitt romney be held accountable for lies and distortions about president obama's record? we got a sneak preview of what happens when mitt romney is forced to tell the t

. this marks their 20th wedding anniversary. obama will be in the audience for tonight's debate in denver. on holding a belated anniversary celebration on saturday. the president's campaign asking supporters to sign an anniversary cards for the first couple. what the debate at 9:00 tonight on abc 7. at 11:00, political reporter have insightwill and analysis. biden, airsident joe 11 was approaching the airport and then the pilot had circle for about 35 minutes because of thunderstorms. then his return trip to andrews was forced to land at dulles airport and he motorcade back to the naval observatory because of the weather. issued to an alert children at west springfield high school. this comes after a female that she was home.ed john gonzalez joins us with this story.ing >> really disturbing. this is a warning for all especially those in west springfield. that alert went out to parents attending westen springfield. according to the washington student got in parking lot on night around 8:00. there were a number of after- school activities that night. she tells police that when she headed ho
right to it. what's the day after looking like for team obama tonight? >> well, you saw the president out there on the campaign trail today, calling out what were mitt romney's distortions last night. the president said that the same mitt romney didn't show up at the debate as showed up in the republican primaries. he was running away from his $5 trillion tax cut plan for millionaires and billionaires but we know the facts. the middle class and seniors would have to pay for the tax cut. he talked about replacing the affordable care act but he didn't say with what. he said he would cover people with pre-existing conditions. what he left out is if you have a pre-existing condition and aren't covered right now or between jobs, you're not going to be covered under mitt romney. we'll spend the next several days making clear what positions mitt romney misled the american people on. >> jennifer: so there is an opportunity there sure for that because mitt romney and we're cataloging these lies here inside "the war
of bipartisanship. in 2008 barack obama did a good job of saying i'm going to be the president of everybody. tonight romney in a different way said look, i'm going to work together with democrats and republicans and there is a very effective presentation in that regard there. is wrn reason take those things together and president obama's supporters have every reason to be upset tonight. >> and tomorrow we'll have fact checking done on everything. and in terms of this president obama supporters one of my colleagues spoke with leader pelosi and she must have seen a different debate than the rest of the democrats were tweeting tonight it says pelosi says defining moment was when romney said he would not ask the wealthyest americans to pay their fair share. that was, i mean a defining moment made for leader pelosi but... it did not seem like a great night for the president. >> interest there is 55 million people watching. people goring to make their judgments independent of the kmechblts very interesting, the president off times the talking points. so one thing he said romney had secret plans on jobs, e
not ready. >> mike murphy tweeted tonight it's funny, tonight romney is much better than his campaign, obama, far worse this says governor romney did look a little different than on the campaign trail. am i wrong about that? >> this is he's been doing this for a long time. this just gave an opportunity in this forum and setting to present himself to the american people and this he did it. i loved the way he started saying you're not going play this rich versus poor game 90 minutes and you're not going to tell the american people something that isn't true about my plans and he did that. and that is i think set the tone. he zrnt a place he can go. so that is why he was meandering not getting to the message because there is nowhere to go. what is going to talk about? he couldn't talk about the economy or jobs and for all of the wining this president does there is a nice thing sthae said you've been in charge four years if you wanted to do these things and put plans into place you had the opportunity z you didn't do it. and this is a save zone of mitt romney is a better place than the safe zone
that decision. .. >> with president obama tonight, we will have to come here to washington dc and tell him, no, we cannot. we cannot do what you want. because it is much deeper than what we are willing to give. the conflict is about the variants in resistance to israel. when we talk with palestinian leaders, we understand -- [inaudible] we don't want to see jews living in the middle east. i do not want to change language that we speak regarding israel. in the book, i put in a new part to change the language for you. i'm talking in my book about our rights. we have rights in israel. starting with the biblical rights and christians and jews alike, the connection of jews to the land. for me it is enough, but for those of you that it is not enough, i am talking about the historical rights. i go back to the book by mark twain in the show historically the connection between jews and israel. just like the connection of palestinians to israel. i am talking about their legal rights and i am sure there are some law students in the room. when you read the book and the legal documents about the declaratio
on the new leadership change. >>> and next, washington and its debate tonight as romney and obama finally square off. we'll have a preview of what to expect and what's at stake with our very own democrat-republican panel. >>> and real estate is on the rise. we head to new york with founder barbara corcoran. mariano rajoy has denied reports that spain will request a bailout. the spanish prime minister joked that news agencies either knew more than he did or that they were, in fact, wrong. meanwhile, moody's rating agency said it will publish a review into spain's credit rating at some point this month. all spanish tax revenues have jumped significantly from precrisis levels due to a high incide incidents -- and seeking profits abroad as domestic demand wanes. just over $16.5 billion euros from corporate tax from the almost $45 billion collected in 2007. let's get out to julia in madrid. this was always going to be one of the challenges for the rajoy government to keep a handle on revenues as it tries to cut spending and increase taxes. >> reporter: absolutely. yes, he's announced the billi

? where was obama tonight? >> you happy? mr. president, you broke chris matthe matthews? let me see if i can come up with a two-minute answer that might have been more effective. liar! lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, lie, liar. >> governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth. >> let me bring in nbc news senior political editor. i have to laugh at jon stewart. wouldn't that have been a sight to have the president pointing over saying there. oh, boy. a lot of things to laugh about. it is so serious to cry about. you want to get folks back to work and see this economy recover for this country. they have to come up with a vision and have a few more debates. >> one thing going back to the debates you show is in the democrats and president obama really hadn't faced adversity over the past three months. over the past three months you've seen the romney campaigns, republicans on the defensive. they finally got some very good news, and i think what's going to end up happening in the election is how the campaigns res
with the crap he threw out. what was he doing tonight? he went in there disarmed. where was obama tonight? >> are you happy? mr. president, you broke chris matthews. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. i'd say happier than a slinky on an escalator. get happy. get geico. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. >>> welcome back to this week in race. first, everyone's favorite segment, white folks be trippin'. on monday senator scott brown again used elizabeth warren's choice to define herself as an american indian to attack her. this from the campaign that loved the tomahawk chop. brown is mad she's claiming something she doesn't appear to be. guess someone has never driven his pickup truck to a vin disease ediesel movie. it was written obama will be reflected because he's black. suddenly it's a decisive advantage. on tuesday the bow tie tried to convi
: good evening, president obama and mitt romney meet here tonight on the stage behind me at the university of denver at the university of denver for their first debate. the stakes are high because 34 days before the election this race is still up for grabs. the latest poll of likely voters by the urinal shows the president with a 3-point lead over governor romney. 49% to 46%. but that's within the margin of error so it's very nearly a tie. the debate tonight is the first chance voters are going to have to size up the candidates side by side. we have a team of campaign 2012 correspondents covering the debate, but first, the candidates themselves. we caught up with the president and governor romney on the campaign trail. mr. president, the race as we speak is essentially tied. i wonder, do you think this is going to come down to the debates? >> well, i don't think that any single factor ends up making a big difference. i think the debates will matter to some undecided voters and to extent that we present a very clear choice for the american people hopefully we'll be able to
obama. but tonight he probably won't need any reminders. >> peter alexander, thanks. >>> now over to our political director and chief white house correspondent chuck todd also at that time venue tonight. chuck, what's the task for both sides, for both men? >> reporter: well, i can tell you that both campaigns view it this way. the candidate that's spent more time litigating the other guy's plans will feel as if they're winning. the campaign that feels like spending more time defending their own plans will feel like they're losing. one lesson that president obama and his campaign believe they've taken from president bush in 2004 is don't take this first debate lightly. that's why they prepared so much. and don't assume he's just going to sit back and, quote, sit on his lead. he's going to be a little more aggressive tonight than many people realize. as for mitt romney, don't be surprised if he tries to get libya in the conversation. yes, it's an economy debate, but he's got a big libya foreign policy speech that he'd like to do in the next couple of days. >> chuck todd part of our team th
, is that expected to be played up heavily tonight? >> i don't think the obama campaign doesn't think this will be a distraction, but perhaps this will be something that governor mitt romney will jump on at some point during the debate. it is interesting, the vice president made those comments yesterday while campaigning in north carolina. and right after that, the romney campaign jumped all over those remarks. in fact, they put together a conference call to draw attention to that. the obama campaign fighting back saying that's an act of desperation and what the vice president was talking about is that there was this climate over the last four years that were created by decisions that were made in the previous administration. and so, again, they don't see it as a distraction, but i wouldn't be surprised if it didn't come up tonight. >> all right, dan lothian, live for us in denver, a long day ahead of him. do appreciate that. thank you, dan. >>> those debates can be so incredibly grueling, but they are a veritable picnic compared to the actual preparation for the debate. the candidate
for this debate tonight; jobs, the economy, health care. but first, a new distraction for the obama campaign during a critical week. it comes in the form of a video released by "the daily caller" of then-presidential candidate barack obama back in 2007. in it he speaks to a group mostly made up of black pastors. his speech got some coverage at the time he delivered it, but his prepared remarks did not include some of the off-the-cuff, off-prompter moments, if you will, alluding to alleged racism to hurricane katrina and spending decisions made by our elected leaders. our chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with more. mike? >> reporter: hi, megyn. the tone has attracted some attention with then-candidate obama sounding different as he spoke to a large group of african-american religious leaders in virginia. one major topic was mr. obama trying to contrast the response to hurricane katrina and other high-profile disasters. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget
people! >> in colorado tonight, barack obama and mitt romney in their first presidential date. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward. >> what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> two men with different vision on issues voters care about most. both of them. >> we certainly can't go far with a leader who writes off half a nation. >> he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well, we're going to give him that chance in november. >> watch cnn's coverage, side by side on big problems. will this night change an election that's just a month away? >> i need your help on november 6th. >> you believe in me. i'm asking for your vote. >> the nation is watching, voters want answers and america's future is up for debate. >>> this is university of denver, where the presidential candidates could go a long way tonight toward winning or losing the white house. president barack obama and governor mitt romney, they are both getting
is probably losing. that means barack obama has everything to lose tonight if he doesn't do perfectly well. he's not the best debater out there. it's mostly his inspiration and hope and change that was good, not his command of the facts. i think mitt romney knows his answers and has to play the inspirational card. >> let me ask you from the republican side, what does mitt romney need to really hit hard tonight? >> i think we want to talk about the lack of jobs. we're going to have to talk about the lack of leadership in foreign policy and mitt romney has to know his stuff and not look like the rich guy who doesn't care about the 47%. if he can do that, he's going to win the beer debate, meaning that people want to have a beer with him. people want to like him and vote for him. that's what he'll have to do tonight. >> peter, what does the president have to do? >> i'll agree a little bit with that. i think the likability factor is important for mitt romney now. if he comes across as stiff and harsh, that will rebound against him. i think the president has to say, look, we made a good start, a go
team obama knows what happened tonight. i don't think -- but i also think that this is the way this campaign works out. what happened tonight will play out clearly through the weekend to the next debate. so we should be a little -- little temperament in terms -- >> what do you think -- >> let us enjoy a good night. >> one of the things i thought was really interesting about the debate, including, of course, the fact that romney won it and everybody knows it, including obama's campaign energies, romney seemed like he understood the issues better than obama did. it was striking to me when romney said, for example, well, yes, president obama, i agree with training, but there are 47 different programs and 8 agencies and that cost as a lot of money and we need to conso consolida consolidate, and by the way, your support of green energy is costing $90 billion. he did a masterful job of showing he knows the issues. >> let's see what viewers thought, next. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the c
, we're hearing it tonight, kahne. >> jessica yellin from the obama campaign's stephanie cutter. that's why they call it the spin room. wolf. >> kahnca candy, you heard step cutter take a swipe at jim lehrer. you know who the next moderator will be. that will be you. give me your impression, your sense of what happened tonight from a moderator's perspective. we saw the president got four extra minutes in the course of this debate over mitt romney. >> i think, you know, he's in the arena, there is -- and i salute anybody in there, both the candidates as well as the moderator. jim has been around a long time. i'm not sure about the minutes. in the end, this debate is brought to you by these candidates, and to me, it's better to hear from the candidates than to hear from the moderator. generally folks that felt their guy lost the debate might want more time or less. if you look back at other debates jim has done, he tries to engage candidates who are really unwilling to engage each other at time. the president wouldn't look at mitt romney, seemed to be this they didn't want to go and tal
. >>> welcome back. in raw politics tonight, more on president obama's performance last night in denver, as we have been reporting president obama himself knows that he lost the debate. he's upset about it. here to talk about it tonight, obama 2012 pollster, cornell belcher. also, ralph reed. cornell, bored, aloof, some said even arrogant. those are some of the words used today and last night to describe president obama on that stage. what exactly was the strategy heading into this? was there a strategy? >> what you saw last night from the president was the president trying to lay out the facts to those few undecided voters that are still out there. here's our plan, here's how we want to move the country forward versus mitt romney and his plan about moving the country forward. the problem with the debate last night is that one candidate showed up talking about the facts of their plan and the other candidate showed up with a completely different plan, and was completely dishonest about the facts of his plan. that was a little problematic. >> but the president did not seem to take the fight to m
tonight, there's spin and then there's spin. shortly after president obama turned in a performance in which he was widely perceived as dull and downcast and mitt romney was seen as being upbeat, obama campaign spokeswoman stephanie cutter tried to paint mitt romney this way. >> mitt romney, yes, he absolutely wins the preparation and he wins the style points. but that's not what's been dogging his campaign. you know what's worse, he got testy about it. he got testy about being on defense. i think that came across to the american people. >> keeping them honest, it's hard to find evidence for that conclusion in our poll of people who watched the debate. 67% to 25%, they thought mr. romney won the debate. when asked who was more likeable, debate watchers gave the two candidates essentially equal marks. that's one piece of spin that doesn't quite pass the sniff test. decide for yourself if this one does from the campaign's ben lebold who suggested mitt romney last night was acting. >> it was performance art. he locked himself into some bad positions that he took during the republican p
and danielle nottingham. >> derek, tonight's debate will be on domestic issues. president obama will make his case for the next four years and mitt romney will be more specific about his plans for the country. when mitt romney and president obama meet on this stage for their first debate, more than 50 million viewers are expected to tune in. greg is an important member of that audience. he is an undecided voter. >> i think they are talking directly to me. >> wayland's top issue, the economy. >> that's going to be the thing for me. someone that comes forward with a cohesive plan for america and where america fits into that. >> both candidates have spent hours rehearsing for this moment. they'll face each other for 90 minutes. president obama has to avoid any major missteps and explain to voters why unemployment is so high and the economic recovery so slow. >> i think what you'll hear the president do tonight is have a conversation directly with the american people about where we have been over the past four years and what we have to continue to do moving forward to strengthe
romney will face off in their first presidential debate tonight. >> governor romney and president obama will meet behind me. >> reporter: what happens on this stage could be pivotal with only five weeks until election day. the first debate will focus on the economy and domestic policy. both took a break tuesday, with mitt romney grabbing a bite to eat in denver, president obama visited the hoover dam for the first time. >> the president: it is spectacular. >> reporter: both relied heavily on their running mates to lead their campaign. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> reporter: it didn't take long for republican vice presidential hopeful ryan to pounce on that comment. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been "buried." we agree. >> reporter: the latest poll shows the race for president is still close. which means every word and gesture tonight could impact the election. after a couple of coin tosses last night we learned president obama will be taking the first que
. no grapevine tonight so we can bring you more debate coverage. we just heard, as you know from obama senior advisor robert gibbs. now joined by romney senior advisor eric burnstrom. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> bret: what does the governor need to do tonight? >> talk about the choice that faces american voters. a big choice with president obama, me we can have four years like the last four year. with governor romney, we can put this country back on the path to the real recovery, with more jobs and rising incomes for all americans. if you look back over the last fur years and be objective about it, you will see we have fewer jobs, household incomes have gone down. we have record breaking debt. more spending in washington. raided medicare to pay for obamacare. we can't afford as a country to continue with the policies of the last four years. governor romney has a plan to create 19 million jobs by the end of his first term in office. it will be a real recovery with more jobs and riding incomes for everyone. >> it's wednesday. we have had three full days of experts saying what gov
double tonight. the consensus and also the political reality now stairing team obama in the face. there is also no denying that no matter who wins or loses a given debate, each side immediately tries to convince you and us that their candidate came out ahead. there's even that designated spin room, the one in denver, and yes, they actually call it that, the spin room. which is everyone's way of saying with a wink and a nod that we know that you know that we know that you know that we're trying to bamboozle you. again, that's a given. both times spin. but keeping them honest tonight, there's spin and then there's spin. shortly after president obama turned in a performance in which he was widely perceived as dull and downcast and mitt romney was seen as being upbeat, obama campaign spokeswoman stephanie cutterried to paint mitt romney this way. >> mitt romney, yes, he absolutely wins the preparation and he wins the style points. but that's not what's been dogging his campaign. you know what's worse, he got testy about it. he got testy about being on defense. i think that came acros
for the wealthy. tom, what is the reaction from both candidates? >> we've been on the phone tonight with both campaigns. we spoke with one romney campaign official who said quote, he crushed it. quite frankly. the romney forces appeared their a-game left on the obama camp. they were more measured. say said this dewait unfolded and the president in their viewpoint got stronger as this debate went on. one of the very first direct exchanges came on the issue of the deficit. governor romney challenged the president that he had not done enough to reduce the president. lead to mass i have cuts. >> you have been president four years. you would cut the deficit in half, we still have trillion dollar deficits. a trillion dollar deficit each of the four years. if you are reelected, we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. >> we're asking for no revenue, we hag to give -- end up in resulting in se veer hardship for poem. >> social security is also a big topic. both men went back and forth on this one. >> you can call it a target or lind pent voters. they are eventually going to need social security, so t
evening and terrific weekend. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the obama administration tonight is embroiled in a widening controversy with new questions asked of the president and white house of the murder of ambassador christopher stevens and three others. john kerry is rumored to be the president's choice to be hillary clinn'

will be vulnerable tonight if romney focuses on this point. >> we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we can barely aforfour more months. if we have four more years of president obama we can't wait four years for the economy to start growing. >> reporter: that may be resonating as the race tightening again in latest nbc news, "wall street journal" poll. romney is trailing by three points, within the margin of error. 46% of registered voters approve of the president's handling of the economy. 51% disapprove. top aides say the president's strategy tonight is to try to turn his weaknesses on the economy and deficit to strengths. by roughing up romney on the idea he will hurt the middle class. >> he says he will cut the deficit, please. he wants $2 trillion in new defense spending that the pentagon didn't ask for. $5 trillion tax cut, future of the wealthy. >> reporter: the claim is complicated by the way biden framed the argument. >> how they can justify raising taxes in the middle class has been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify raising their taxes? >> obama o

. again, it is the obamas' 20th wedding anniversary tonight. watching along with us has been our team. david gregory, the moderator of "meet the press." social media. everybody with a twitter account has opined already. it appeared that an energetic mitt romney showed up for this face time tonight before a national audience. >> energetic, aggressive, came like he understood that the stakes were high, that he's behind in this race. and what a contrast, brian. president obama looked like a president who felt he had a pretty comfortable lead in the polls and wanted to stay above the fray. decidedly unfeisty in his approach. a lot of people felt he was not very crisp in his presentation, perhaps should have been more crisp after four years in the white house. governor chris christie on "meet the press" sunday said there would be a different narrative in this race come thursday morning. i think a lot of republicans are going to feel that that's indeed the case. >> very interesting scene playing out here on the stage. really the first time these two families have had the time and occasion t
, but these are the latest numbers we have tonight. obama is now leadinging in the latest polling from all nine battleground states. particularly a problem tonight is florida. the latest cbs poll shows obama ahead by nine points in florida. so, is this true? you may have heard about this. many on the right saying the polls are skewed. they're unfair. here is why republican strategist karl rove who knows polls and elections better than anyone says these polls can't possibly be right. >> think about this. romney and obama get each roughly the same percentage of the republicans and democrats as their opponent. that is to say they carry their base overwhelmingly. romney among independents is winning by three points, so if romney's winning the independents and republicans, do you think in a battleground state like florida, he's nine points down? the answer is no. >> okay. that math doesn't actually work out because according to the florida poll, those who say they're most likely going to vote, 36% say they're democrats, 27% republicans and 33% independents, so as you can see, the math that karl rove laid out doe
talking a lot about what you will see tonight when president obama faces off with mitt romney. now, we want to show you how through their stump speeches, this is point, counterpoint from the campaign trail on just a cull couple of issues facing america now. here now the debate before the debate. >> he thinks if we spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, if we get rid of regulations on wall street, all our problems will be solved and jobs and prosperity will trickle down on all of you. the deficit will disappear, we'll live happily ever after. >> there is only one problem with that, we tried that in the decade before i became president. it didn't work. top down economics never works. >> i know there are some people in this country that think that the government's role is to take from some to give to others. i'm not talking about the effort to care for those in need. we're a compassionate people, we always care for those that have needs of one kind or another and help people get back on their feet. but he wants to redistribute and the idea is to try and level
will discuss tonight as if list send to candidate obama not even two weeks since he voted in the united states senate against the waiver of the act for new orleans i doubt we'll ever see such a clear case of such cynical opportunism by any candidate certainly not from any officeholder. thank you. we'll have more on the debate coming up. >> whereas obama's cabinet been hiding? who are they? when do they meet? we look at who is running the government in the "chalk talk." the debate is tonight. who will win? a neutral observer will give us his view reince priebus with his expectations. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. lou: a lot of questions to be answered tonight talking with reince priebus

. "jetm gentlemen, great to have you with us tonight. don't we need to see more of president obama, what we saw today, the next time he shares the stage with mitt romney? can we afford to see more of the same? >> oh, i think we all want to see the one we saw last night. i mean, you know, i think the best story i heard this morning about how obama supporters felt was a friend last night after the debate, a friend said that his wife woke up in the middle of the night and she thought she had a nightmare and she actually realized she was remembering the debate. now, the -- it's a true story. now, i think there are things in that debate that will actually come back to haunt mitt romney which i'll get to, but i think president obama was so determined not to make a mistake, not to upset the trajectory of the campaign, not to look like somebody who would offend swing voters, that he went all the way over the other way. and that just didn't work. it may -- but it may work in two respects. one is, i think there are swing voters, particularly women, who found mitt romney too hot. put aside the lies
